Quotes about the IB Programme from IB Diploma Graduates

…I find that [IB’s] greatest benefit was that it left me with a better understanding of myself: my capabilities, my strengths as well as my weakness.
By pushing my boundaries, the program compelled me to strive for a higher degree of excellence
and in doing so it fostered within me both academic and personal growth…”

“I think that IB is a great opportunity, not just for me, but for everybody else. It doesn't just
give you a challenge – it helps you grow, mature, and learn responsibility
. It teaches you to become a better person.”

These quotes are from In Their Own Words: Quotes about IBO
Why IB DP?
